The holiday season is upon us and decorations are going up. When you decorated your exterior door this year did you make a mental note that it’s time for a new door? It’s a little late to have one ordered and installed by Christmas, but it’s never too late to start planning your exterior door replacement project. Don’t forget to tell Santa what you want for Christmas.
Why Replace Your Door?
You look at your entry every day, and If you don’t love it’s time to replace it. We all know our home’s exterior doors are subject to the elements of the seasons (spring, summer, winter and fall). Weather is going to take its toll and over time your doors are going to begin showing age and wear. Likewise, the extreme heat and cold causes structural changes to wooden doors with shrinking, swelling, drafts and even bowing. Which, makes them difficult to open and close.
Curb appeal aside, there are other reasons homeowners decide to replacement their doors. With the rising cost of utilities, installing an energy efficient door is a wise investment. Saving you money over time. Many homeowners are replacing other exterior elements such as windows for this very reason. Additionally, older doors are not low maintenance and will require scraping and painting. You can mark that home maintenance task right off your list. Replacement doors are now very low maintenance only requiring a wipe down with soap and water to clean.
There are more options than a little these days for doors. In fact, this year Pella came out with a very colorful line of entry doors the Vibrancy Collection. No longer are you limited to the classy black door or the standard brown wood look. Don’t get me wrong, those are beautiful and appealing too. All we’re saying is for those who prefer something different the choices are available. Choose a door that is a reflection of your personal taste and style!

Want to thank NUHome Roofing for an outstanding job! Interviewed several roofing companies and decided on NUHome based on Mike's (Salesperson) presentation. Mike pointed out the high standards NUHome was required to meet to comply with GAF continued endorsement of their product. Workers are trained to meet GAF standards and GAF continues testing and improving on their product. I learned about some new features in roofing which GAF introduced exclusively. Additionally, Mike told my wife and I that they were subjected to spot checks by GAF. The team that replaced our roof worked under extremely 'hot' conditions but they worked methodically, taking breaks when needed. The job took three days. At the end of each day, the team methodically cleaned up all debris and old roofing materials. First time in quite a while I can say I was fully pleased with a job I had done. We have a new, pleasing roof and I think of those dedicated men up there walking that steep roof and the conditions they had to work under. Most happy!" - Delbert Hardiman
